virtual static method in interfaces & generics

I want to be able to write code like this:

public T Create<T>() where T : new(string), operator +
{
return new T("something") + new T("something");
}

or this:

public interface IConverter<Tin, Tout>
{
static Tout Convert(Tin value);
}

public static Tout Convert<TConverter, Tin, Tout>(Tin value)
where TConverter : IConverter<Tin, Tout>
{
return TConverter.Convert(value);
}
